Hull's Nikica Jelavic is out due to knee surgery and midfielder Tom Huddlestone suspended. Robbie Brady could return to the squad but Mo Diame and James Chester are still out due to injury for the Tigers. Chelsea on the other hand will have a fully fit squad available for selection.
Hull come into the game having lost just 1 of their last 6 Premier League games, while only conceding 3 goals in their last 5. Hull have also received 5 red cards this season, with only Aston Villa worse amongst the 20 clubs and the Tigers have also yet to beat a top-half side this season.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 8 Premier League games, 5 of them wins, and have taken 22 points since Christmas Day. The Blues have only failed to score in 1 of their previous 28 Premier League games all season, a 0-0 draw they had with Sunderland. Chelsea have also only managed to score 2 of more goals in 1 of their last 6 games.
Prediction: Hull will put up a fight but the loss of Jelavic hurts them. I can see Chelsea winning but not confidently.
